Drug testing welfare recipients starts Monday

MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) -- Wisconsin will start drug testing welfare recipients starting Monday. Governor Scott Walker signed off on the rule, as-written by the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families. The rule requires testing able-bodied adults seeking certain benefits.

Walker issued a statement today saying, “Employers across the state frequently tell me they have good-paying jobs available in high-demand fields, but need their workers to be drug-free. These important entitlement reforms will help more people find family-supporting jobs, moving them from government dependence to true independence.”

Politicians are paid with our tax dollars as well. They need to be drug tested. Regularly.

It's time that the politicians start playing by the same rules as their constituents.

Drug testing should be mandatory for ANYONE receiving free state or federal benefits. It should also be performed in the same high priority way that jobs required. There should be not room for any person to give someone else's urine. Therefore, urine and blood samples should be the mandatory way to cover all potential people who want to 'pull over a fast one'.

And this is exactly how the pendulum will swing back again to the LEFT in 4 years or so.

Drug testing should be done randomly for anyone with a driver's license. Computer spits out numbers once a month and you have 48 hours to show up for test or lose license. Remember, driving is a privilege not a right.

Wisconsin is not the first. There are many states in the south that do it.
